Apple M2, M2 Pro and M2 Max processors: some specifications and 9 computers that will use them are leaked
Apple has found a competitive advantage with its revolutionary ARM processors, and it’s ready to make the most of it.
In just over a year, Apple has put up for sale computers with Apple M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max and M1 Ultra processorsand is already testing new models with a new generation Apple M2, M2 Pro, and M2 Max.
For users it is a bit disconcerting, because they buy a MacBook Pro with M1 Pro (review), which are not exactly cheap, and after 3 months they announce a version twice as powerful…
Bloomberg has had access to some application logs that are already being tested with the new SoCs, and thanks to them we have new data on the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, and the computers that will use it.
According to this publication, the new processors M2Pro Y M2Max will be present in two new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.
A 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips is codenamed J414. The M2 Max chip has 12 CPU cores and 38 graphics cores, compared to 10 CPU cores and 32 graphics cores on the M1 Max. It will also have 64 GB of memory.
A 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, codenamed J416. The 16-inch MacBook Pro M2 Max will have the same specs as the 14-inch MacBook Pro version.
The new data is that the M2 Max will have 2 more CPU cores and 6 more GPU cores than the M1 Max.
Bloomberg also unveils new Mac models, though less precisely. ensure that we will have a new MacBook Air with a 10-core GPU, and an entry-level MacBook Pro with M2 and 10-core GPU.
there will be also a new Mac Mini equipped with M1 Pro, although it will have a hard time competing with the recently introduced Mac Studio. Besides, a Mac Mini with M2 Pro.
Finally, Bloomberg predicts (for this he has no data), a Mac Pro with M2 Ultra processor, which would be the union of two M2 Max. It is striking that there is no sign of new iMacs.
At the moment there are no dates for these new models, but the publication ensures that Apple will launch at least 2 new computers in the first half of the year.
We may have more clues at the WWDC 2022 developer conference, which will take place on June 6.
